Hardest uk trail

Post by beddowsm » Sat May 31, 2014 7:57 pm

Ok, so there are plenty of trails out there with tough sections. But what's the hardest in the uk, either trail or section of a trail. What do people think? Let's get a list going.

Tough will mean different things to different riders, so what I'm really after is a tough trail on any bike for a decent rider.

There are some trails I've really struggled on but eventually made them solo, but there are some trails/sections that are impossible solo. These are what I'm after.

I'll start, I recon bwlch y groes in north Wales has to be a good contender. Definitely too hard to do solo. Muddy boggy swamps, steep rutty climb. I'll stick up some photos when I can.......

But in the meantime what trails do other riders think should be considered hard.
